The 2008 Elite Retreat event is already over. This years event was truly different. It was the first one that was 100% operated by the “ShoeMoney” staff and wow its not easy ;). Tigh did a awesome job coordinating everything and Dr. David Klein also stepped in and helped us out a lot.
Here are some of the attendees reviews so far:
Barbara Boser – Elite Retreat
Zac Johnson – Elite Retreat Networking and Fun Times in San Francisco
Justin Golf – recap – Was it worth the $5000???
John Hasson Elite Retreat 2008 Review
Al Carlton Elite Retreat First Impressions
Gyutae Park Is elite retreat worth 5k?
(these are the ones I found so far. If I missed any please ping me and I will add them)
I have also been getting a lot of questions about having more Elite Retreat events and also making it less expensive and open to more people. If we do another event the last thing I doubt that will ever be changed will be the price point and the cap of only 35 attendees. I really believe that is a big part of what makes the event so special. As far as having more events …. honestly 1 per year is all I really want to deal with at this point.
I want to thank all the speakers. They all did a awesome job! Andy Liu was really the sleeper of the bunch. Andy has always been a behind the scenes guy and I think he had everyone in the room taking notes on the amazing stuff he has been able to accomplish. Andy was also very open about exactly how he did it. I know I have about 2 pages of notes myself 😉
So big thanks again to all the speakers:
and special guest keynote speakers:
And to the sponsors! Thanks for listening and paying for all the cool things I wanted to do at this years event!
